The Wood Foundation supports young people from the North and North-east of Scotland to volunteer overseas for life-changing and developmental experiences.

Our Volunteering Overseas fund empowers young people to make a difference, developing their awareness of global, active citizenship while making a meaningful impact on communities.

Applications, available on this page, are accepted from:

  • Individuals local to the North-east of Scotland
  • Those taking part in a project that builds capacity of the community without displacement of local employment or business
  • Those who will share their experiences and learnings upon return
  • Those who are travelling with travelling with a well-established organisation – preferably charitable. However we will consider applications from non-charitable sending organisations.
